Dartmouth Day of Caring 2014
Earlier this month, the William Jewett Tucker Foundation partnered with Granite United Way for the Day of Caring Workday.
Some 160 students turned out to volunteer for the day, representing a diverse cross section of the College that included Native American Studies Program students, international students, First Year Student Enrichment Program (FYSEP) students, and other volunteers. Co-Chair Gentes and presidential Fellow Holli Weed '14 joined the group that sorted donations and did grounds work at the Upper Valley Haven, a homeless shelter and food bank.
Students and staff volunteers fanned out, working on projects that included painting at Child and Family Services, window washing at the good neighbor Health Clinic, and trail work with the Upper Valley Trails Alliance on the grounds of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital.
All this work comes in advance of the 2014 Dartmouth United Way Campaign, which officially begins next week.
Granite United Way: Working Together, Improving Lives in the Upper Valley
Upper Valley residents know how to work together and make positive change happen in their community. Your United Way gift, of any size, can make a tremendous difference to our community.
Granite United Way Born at Dartmouth 41 Years Ago
The United Way has conducted a campaign at Dartmouth College since 1973. Dartmouth College and the UVUW share a long history.
The Upper Valley United Way traces its own beginnings to a special community meeting in November 1971. The Rev. John Mitman of Dartmouth's Tucker Foundation, and chairman of the Tri-Town Resource Exchange's Community Service Committee, presented the committee's findings of their study to determine the best vehicle for local service agencies "to communicate, co-operate, co-ordinate, plan and raise money together."
The committee proposed the establishment of a United Way, and the community vote was unanimously in favor. Since then, the Dartmouth College campaign has ranked as the largest employee campaign in the Upper Valley and is endorsed by the President's office and the entire administration of the college.
